Longline Panty Girdles

Longline panty girdles provide firm support to the tummy, hips, bottom and thighs. Ideal for wearing under jeans and trousers, particularly low waisted styles, they will reduce any tummy overhang and take inches off your waist and thighs. These can also be worn under skirts and dresses.

Ladies looking for all over support and shaping from the bust down to the hips and abdomen will love the corselet (also spelt corselette). This shapewear option is made up of a combined corset and bra and is extremely comfortable to wear.

Panty Corselet

The panty corselet is fastened under the gusset with poppers and is designed for wearing under trousers or skirts.

Longline Bras

For upper torso toning, the Longline bra is a great choice of product that can be worn on its own or combined with a girdle to extend the support downwards. The Longline bra smooths lumps and bumps between the bust and stomach to create a flattering smooth appearance. It is therefore ideal for wearing with tight, clingy or sheer tops. Longline bras also help to improve your posture.
